LATS L301 Latino Immigrants
In U.S. Society
(Class #27026) (Credits 3.0)

Professor Jorge Chapa, Instructor

Prerequisite: Open to juniors and seniors only. This course examines
Latino immigrants to the U.S. with a focus on the frequent conflict
between these immigrants and U.S. society.  Major topics include the
comparison of Mexican-American, African-American, and Anglo-American
workers in the rural South and the urban North; an assessment of how
well assimilation theory fits the Latino experience; and the aspects
of Latino culture and circumstances that may hinder full
participation in U.S. institutions. This section may be taken for
both cultural and historical studies credit.
